Minneapolis

Where else can you find inexpensive Marc Jacobs bags, vintage headpieces and handpainted circle skirts, all in a 15-mile radius? We map out the thriving shopping scene in Minneapolis.

Blacklist Vintage

This Uptown boutique cherry-picks the best of each decade—like Lilly Pulitzer sheaths from the '60s, handpainted circle skirts from the '50s and beautifully tailored silk dresses from the '40s.

25 E. 26th St., 612-872-8552, blacklistvintage.com

Design Collective

Exhibiting in this Uptown boutique is a rite of passage for emerging local talent—our big find was St. Paul's Hackwith Design House and its balletic cotton dresses.

1311 W. 26th St.
, 612-377-1000, designcollectivempls.com

Finn Style

Fans of the now-famous website, which features home accessories by Finnish designers, will love this depot-size flagship store: Helsinki expat Elina Ruppert offers exclusive deals not available online, like steep discounts on Marimekko fabric remnants.

160 Glenwood Ave.
, 612-333-2127, finnstyle.com

Grethen House

The region's most fashion-forward boutique (read: Zero + Maria Cornejo, Comme des Garçons, etc.) has a stellar selection of accessories. Its resale-focused sister store in Minneapolis, GH2, has an especially wide selection of premium denim brands.

4930 France Ave., Edina, 952-926-8725, grethenhouse.com; GH2: 318 E. Hennepin Ave., 612-378-0509, grethenhouse2.tumblr.com

Hunt & Gather Antiques

We could have spent days (weeks!) digging for treasures­—art deco mirrors, 19th-century jelly cabinets and innumerable vintage maps—at this jam-packed two-level antiques emporium.

4944 Xerxes Ave. S.
, 612-455-0250, huntandgatherantiques.com

I Like You

This Northeast Minneapolis shop feels like a real-life, expertly edited Etsy, with over 200 local artists, such as screen printers Adam Turman and Too Many Suitors, and totally non-kitschy Minnesota-themed souvenirs.

501 First Ave. NE, 612-208-0249, ilikeyouonline.com

June

In three days, we saw that same number of pristine, hugely discounted Marc Jacobs bags come into this resale shop—and go right back out.

3406 Lyndale Ave. S.
, 612-354-3970, juneresale.com

Parc Boutique

The perfect source for pulled-together weekend wear: super-cute and casual, with just enough spark to keep it all interesting.

320 E. Hennepin Ave.
, 612-353-4966, parcboutique.com

Room and Board Outlet

Go ahead and rent a U-Haul; you'll save so much on the coveted, affordable furnishings here, you'll have the cash to cover it.
